 Paraconsistent logics restrict the inferential power of logics that
 trivialize inconsistent sets, such as Classical Logic. A large number of
 different paraconsistent logics have been developed in the previous and
 present century. They attempt to formalize reasoning from inconsistent
 premises, with the intent to explain how theories may be inconsistent, and
 yet meaningful and useful. Such non-trivial inconsistent theories definitely
 exist: this is abundantly shown in the history of science. There are
 moreover prototypical non-empirical cases among which naive set theory and
 naive truth theories are the most prominent ones.

 The great variety of paraconsistent logics gives rise to various,
 interrelated questions:
 (a) What are the desiderata a paraconsistent logic should satisfy?
 (b) Which paraconsistent logics score well given certain desiderata?
 (c) Is there prospect of a universal approach to paraconsistent reasoning
 with axiomatic theories?
 (d) Comparison of paraconsistent approaches in terms of inferential power.
 (e) To what extent is reasoning about sets structurally analogous to
 reasoning about truth?
 (f) To what extent is reasoning about sets structurally analogous to
 reasoning with inconsistent axiomatic theories in the natural sciences?
 (g) Is paraconsistent logic a normative or descriptive discipline, or
 intermediate between these two options?
 (h) Which inconsistent but non-trivial axiomatic theories are well
 understood by which types of paraconsistent approaches?

 This conference aims to address these questions from different perspectives
 in order (i) to obtain a representative overview of the state of the art in
 paraconsistent logics, (ii) to come up with fresh ideas for the future of
 paraconsistency, and (iii) to facilitate debate and collaboration beyond the
 borders of the different schools of paraconsistency.
